Sadly I need to wean my 5mth DS on to prescription formula. This has not been an easy road or resolution to accept, but one our LC as well as Paed and GP all agree on for the best thing for bubs in this rare case
Currently we demand b/f which is an average 8 feeds per 24hrs, usually 2 overnight. Could I please get some advice on how to safely wean so that I don't end up too engorged or with mastitis? I don't mind if it takes a few weeks as I'd be happy to at least be able to reach 6mths b/f if possible, even if only comp feeding.
I'm absolutely devastated that I have to end our b/f bond and relationship, so anything to make it as easy as possible on the both of us would be appreciated. I have no idea how to start the weaning process and my LC is on holidays. Thanks in advance.
